FSS is now 4-3. Both teams are currently in second place of their divisions.

The game began with MDG commanding a strong 8-0 lead. FSS tried to fight back and take control of the game but failed as the clock wound down on the first half. The first half ended with MDG in the lead 25-14.

MDG continued to lead during the second half with the score 27-14 and 17 minutes to go.

But FSS wasn’t going down without a fight and scored five unanswered points. FSS continued to struggle making buckets down low, which allowed MDG to maintain a 36-26 lead with 8:43 left on the clock.
